Prayer is the heartbeat of mission! "Ask of Me and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritence, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession" (Psalm 2:8) is the ROAR of God's heart to His people.
The heart is a muscle, and like other muscles, it requires an electrical impulse to be activated. Without this consistent, driving pulse, life ceases to exist in the body. God has also orchestrated prayer as the main artery to carry His blood, His life source, to every member of the Body.
A heartbeat demonstrates that something is still alive. We are seeing a recession in intercession in the churches of America, and as a result, the Body is trying to advance and become a vital force in the earth without any power flowing through its veins. Just as a heartbeat must continually be in motion, sending forth signals of life, we must never cease in intercession for the nations of the earth.
A new sound is erupting where the prayers of God's people are intertwined with worship, and this captures His heart cry. At GlobalROAR, we embrace the vision to see 24/7 worship and prayer released through the local church – for and into the nations of the world! A well-developed model of this type of Harp and Bowl prayer is taking place around the clock at the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City.
Let us be the people that carry and demonstrate this ROAR all over the earth, and may we dedicate our lives to listen to the heartbeat of God!
